GECA has created a lifecycle ecolabel standard to remove doubt and confusion and make identifying environmentally and socially preferable products easier.
The standard sets requirements that aim to provide a benefit by:
• demonstrating performance and safety for the Australian market
• avoiding the illegal harvest of natural materials and fibre for raw materials
• reducing the use and subsequent release of environmentally harmful substances to the environment at all stages of the product’s lifecycle
• encouraging recovery, reuse, recycling and responsible disposal of unwanted product and packaging
• reducing the presence and release of substances harmful to human health
• ensuring workers and suppliers through the supply chain can expect fair pay, equal opportunity, and a safe working environment
The scope of this standard is applicable to infant mattresses products, including but not limited to:
• Cot and crib mattresses
• Household cot mattresses
• Mattresses for Bassinets
• Other flat sleeping surfaces
